Virginia recently became the first southern state to legalize recreational marijuana.

Each household can have up to four cannabis plants. You can read more HERE.
In response to this news Julaine Appling, president of WFA, urges the constituents of Wisconsin to educate themselves on this matter.
“This battle [of legalizing or not legalizing marijuana] has come to our state, and we need to educate ourselves. Some Republicans in our legislature have introduced a bill to make possession of ten grams or less of marijuana a misdemeanor, not a felony. Ten grams of marijuana is about a third of an ounce, or about fifteen to twenty joints. Governor Evers’ budget calls for legalizing the recreational use of marijuana.”
